If you surf the Internet, you are probably familiar with ads by Google. Google itself estimates that its advertising network reaches 80 percent of internet users. The key to these ads (and other context relevant internet advertising) is that the ads displayed on a website are intended to be relevant to the content the user is viewing.
This relevance hopefully means that more people who see the ads will click on them. Advertisers only pay when a user clicks on an ad (thus, this form of advertising is often called pay-per-click advertising). There are two halves to this advertising equation--the website owners and the advertisers.
Website owners display these ads and earn fees each time their visitors click on an ad. The fee is typically a few cents per click, although in some cases it is as much as several dollars per click. Publishing these types of ads represents one way to work online and make money.
Another way to work online is through affiliate advertising. Many companies pay a percentage of revenue to web publishers who send visitors that buy products to their sites. Affiliate advertising represents a potential way of earning significant revenue online.
In some cases, it is not even necessary for an individual to own his or her own website to make money from affiliate advertising. If you would like more information on using pay-per-click advertising to make money online, please look at our listings of some of the best guides to this type of work.
